DISHOOM COVENT GARDEN

22 Kingly Street, W1B 5QP

DISHOOM-LOTI

Based on the old Irani cafes of Bombay, Dishoom brings authentic, all-day, cafe style Indian dining to the capital, and as the queues suggest, Londoners still can’t get enough. And with good reason…Dishoom never disappoints. Decked out with marble tables, ceiling fans, dark wood and drooping pendant lights, the original Covent Garden outpost definitely looks the part, and the food more than matches it.

From breakfast…the Bacon Naan Roll is legendary…through to dinner, the temptation to over order is real. Sharing is caring, so bring your pals and tuck into everything from the signature Black House Daal to the Chicken Ruby to the Awadhi Lamb biryani. And it wouldn’t be a cafe without an extensive drinks list…with lassis, chais, beers and Bombay-inspired cocktails, you won’t be short of refreshment.

GYMKHANA

42 Albermarle Street, London, W1S 4JH

GYMKHANA-LOTI

Modelled after the sporting clubs of the Raj, with lots of dark wood, rattan, marble tables and hunting trophies, Michelin-starred Gymkhana is a tad more upmarket than your average curry house…in fact, it was voted the best Indian restaurant in the UK at last year’s National Restaurant Awards. And what do you get at the country’s best Indian restaurant? Boldly spiced sharing dishes and a strong focus on game…you don’t dishes see Kid Goat Methi Keema, Gilafi Quail Seekh Kebab, Sofiyan Roe Deer Chop and the famous Wild Muntjac Biryani any old place. There’s even a seven course game tasting menu if it really tickles your fancy.

Gymkhana doesn’t hold back on the booze either, re-creating a 17th century Indian punch house on the ground floor where you can sip on iced punches, pink gin and tonics, IPAs and spiced cocktails like Quinine Sour, Fusion Lassi and Kohli Margarita. Fancy feasting indeed.

TALLI JOE

152-154 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8HL

TALLI-JOE-LOTI

Half plates and full drinks is a restaurant concept we can fully get behind and that’s exactly what they do at Talli Joe. The food and the booze have been designed to go hand in hand…there’s an entire Pauwa and Chakhna menu that does just that, so you don’t even have to think about it. Small plates equals sharing though, and with dishes like Kale Chaat, Whitebait Kempu, and the standout Nihari Nalli, you’ll want to be trying as much as you can.

The cocktails take inspiration from across India and are handily divided up into north, south, east and west, so you’ll have no trouble in reaching a state of ‘talli’…that’s a happy tipsy, Hindi style.

CHIT CHAAT CHAI

356 Old York Road London, SW18 1SS

Chit-Chaat-Chai-LOTI

Chit Chaat Chai is definitely not your typical Indian with a focus on chaat, rather than kebabs and curries. After a successful stint on the streets of London town, Tania and Dhruv decided to take the plunge and open a permanent site in Wandsworth to serve up those little savoury street food snacks all week long. And it’s not all about the food here, their colourful interiors are just as much of a draw too with newspaper covered floors and graffitied walls.

CINNAMON CLUB

The Old Westminster Library, 30-32 Great Smith St,SW1P 3BU

CINNAMON-CLUB-LOTI

The Cinnamon Club is an oldie, but a goodie. Set in the Old Westminster Library, it’s Indian fine dining at it’s best with the menu including a roast saddle of Romney Marsh lamb, saffron sauce, pickled root vegetables, rustic keema and Morel Malai Kofta – paneer and royal cumin dumpling, stir-fried green pea & morels, tomato & fenugreek sauce and green pea pilau. And if you just can’t decide there’s also a six course tasting menu. Yes it might be white table cloths and formal service but hey, we all need a bit of posh every now and then.
